By the time the weekend rolled around at the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada National Capital Open there was but two Eastern Ontario golfers and one amateur left playing at the Hylands Golf Club.

Already assured the low amateur title (if there was such a thing), over the final 36 holes Noah Steele of Kingston added rounds of 69 and 71 to his opening 67 and 68 to complete play at -9. That earned him a share of 27th place. Unfortunately two late bogies in his final round dropped him from a share of 12th place, but overall it was an impressive showing for a 19 year-old who also claimed the titles at the Flagstick Open and the Whig Standard Championship this summer. It was a first test against pros for the sophomore at Sam Houston State University.

He earned his way into the event after defeating former PGA TOUR member Matt McQuillan in a playoff at the Monday Qualifier.

Steele spoke with Flagstick immediately after his final round to give his assessment of the experience.
